tours between now and election day that governor romney or paul ryan campaigning in this state. 15 events and all. so they are laying all their cards down in ohio. 18 electoral votes are very important. one of the things they're having to sort of overcome here is whether governor romney is of a supporter of union workers. and the job of the car industry in particular. obviously president obama signed that auto bailout package. a lot of folks in ohio and some surrounding states are very appreciative of that. they believe they still have a job today because of that bailout. governor romney, on the other hand, was in favor of a managed bankruptcy for g.m. and chrysler. and so he's got to somehow get voters to look past that, that he would be a supportive president of union workers in this state. as you mentioned, governor romney is down in florida today. we are expected after this bus tour to head down there as well. but right now the polls are looking in the president's favor. the latest cnn poll has the president up 50-46. there's still some work to be done here but we can tell you

to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected presint. that's an important issue distinctiont coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public thought that governor ct romney was more likely to take the country into a war, than was president obama. but the public also believed that president obama had gone around the world apologizing. now in the last debate, governor romney reassured that he was not as likely to take people into war as they had thought in that debate. and i think that was a calculated strategy on his part. now, you could say, "and it was illegitimate. you secretly know that he was more likely." but nonetheless, what we can measure is whether they get what he said he was going to do in the context. and i think that president obama responded to the apologizing around the world claim in a i mber of ways that were effective as well. and i think one of the things that we can say about debas making a difference is that, had there been debat in the i ldwater/johnson election, had there been debates in the mcgovern/nixon election

of the federal reserve faces an uncertain future tied to this presidential election. if romney is elected he has said he would replace ben bernanke as fed chair when his term expires in january of 2014. if obama is elected it's uncertain whether bernanke would want to stay for a third term. what can't be denied is what ben bernanke and the fed has had on the economy and the markets over the last four years. some critics say ben bernanke should have seen the financial crisis before it hit us. that's a conversation for another time. no matter what you do for a living ben bernanke's policies have affected you and your money. bernanke's fed has pumped more than 2s trillion worth of stimulus through the economy through various programs through the recession. unemployment has been trending lower since the stimulus programs started in 2008 and bernanke's fed has been focused on bringing it down. inflation, another one of the fed's chief concerns has been relatively tame if you take out food and energy prices over the last four years, although hard to take out food and energy prices. there are concerns

voters. but he's losing the election day voters, 61% to 44% for mitt romney. so the romney campaign says the president's peaking too soon. do you have a read on the ground there, what's going on? >> well, i mean, the ground game is fascinating there. the president has about three times as many field offices in ohio as mitt romney does. so they're very confident they have enough people to knock on doors, make phone calls and get out the vote on election day. however, late-breaking votes tend not to vote for the incumbent. you know, we know that those voters know who the incumbent is. they haven't gone to him, they haven't voted early for him, so it could end up being a wash on election day and could be a late night. >> you got that right. how about the obama campaign calculation, amie, on this comment about boehner and mcconnell, dog walking and car washing. the gist of all this, what's the reaction? >> well, it's something you said before. i've heard him talk about it on the campaign trail. he's basically trying to send a message that once this all happens, he will be able to work with r

and nevada. that is his fire wall, and unless romney can break through that he won't win the election. >> his fire wall used to include florida and virginia and they're not talking about that as fire wall states anymore with romney ahead in florida. the very fact that michigan and pennsylvania, which obama carried by 16 points and 10 points four years ago -- have gotten close i think has to be an indication that the affluent suburbs, oakland, macomb, livingston in michigan, have been moving towards romney in a significant way, and i think that the democrats are giving you static analysis there. and i think there may be a dynamic at work here. the affluent suburbs are places that people generally tend to turn out in large numbers, and we've seen signs that republicans have more enthusiasm this year. i think one reason ohio is closer is that affluent suburban counties are only an eighth of the statewide votes and a warsmer michigan. >> the romney campaign is saying they're making major investment in ohio, time and money. are they making -- taking a gamble by making a bet on ohio, that if they l
50.3 with mitt romney 48.6. president obama has a 74% chance of winning the election based on his strong performance in several swing states. the president is hoping to capitalize on the momentum to encourage voters to go to the polls as soon as possible by taking advantage of early voting. as of this morning, more than 10.5 million people have already cast their ballots including the president himself. president obama flew back to chicago on thursday to take advantage of early voting in illinois becoming the first sitting president in history to cast a ballot early. mitt romney's campaign, meanwhile, has been buffeted by a series of things that happened to put him on defensive. richard mourdock, who romney has endorsed, became the latest gop candidate to make con throw versal comments about rape. john sununu suggested that former secretary of state colin powell had crossed party lines to endorse president obama because of the president's race. i think what we're seeing in the race is essentially the race regressing to the mean. it's basically the race going to what its stable equ
winning but romney really has to win. and the paradox of the election, one of them is if barack obama does win he should give steve ratner who successfully ran the auto bailout some sort of high level government job or at least a big case of wine to thank him. and the second real ironys mi romney wanted to carry ohio he should have given a lot of money to the environmental groups who were trying to stop fracking. the fact that they were unable to stop fracking means the john growth especially in eastern ohio has been pretty sensational. not only the energy products itself but because of the cheap energy it's generating, you are beginning to seifert lyzer plantings and other things like that. are you getting pretty broad prosperity out of that and more to am come and that is as a result of the shale gas. >> woodruff: mark, you know that state well. does one candidate or the other have more going for it? >> well, judy, i mean this is the year, truly. yocan forget the big apple and forget big it and la, it is janesville, stubinville this is the big casino of this election. i done see how eith
the election. with positive, but still slow, improvement, the white house and the romney campaign offered different assessments. a late boost in consumer spending was a major factor in the economic news from the commerce department. gross domestic product-- the broadest gauge of the country's economic health-- grew at a 2% rate from july through september, slightly better than the 1.8% economists had predicted, and an improvement over the 1.3% growth in the previous quarter. another positive sign today-- a survey from the university of michigan shows consumer confidence this month reached its highest level since september 2007, three months before the recession began. but the gdp growth is still considered by economists to be too weak to bring a quick up-tick in jobs. and on the stump in ames, iowa, today, mitt romney seized on the that aspect of the new report. >> today, we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter, our economy grew at just 2%. after the stimulus was passed, the white house promised it would be growing at 4.3%, over twice as fast. slow economi

or president-elect romney? does it make a difference? >> i don't think at this time it does. i would like a pro-manufacturing president in office versus what we have today. neil: you think mitt romney is more that than theresident? >> well, presidents -- the number one goal should be t protect and number two to lead. i've seen n leadership from the president on this issue. neil: wow. >> so i would say that a o-manufacturing president as romney would have a great effect, but it's going to be medium term. i think a lot of the things that occurred up to date are going to happen in 2013, and there's not much avoiding that. i mean, neil, the one thing, we created this problem, and we've lost so much opportunity in the market. we created the problem. we knew what we were getting ourselves into; right? i call it the perfect storm. there's a big storm heading your way, but there's a storm hitting american manufacturing for 12 months, and it's been defense cuts and tax hikes. we let it happen. we have not come up with a plan to solve it, and the president should be leading on the issue. there's a lot of
